Are you an enthusiastic undergraduate seeking real responsibility? Vauxhall Motors operates a 12 month undergraduate placement scheme for students eager to gain hands-on work experience with an industry-leading company.

We spoke to Teach First at our Graduate Job and Placement Fair to ask why and how they use psychometric tests as part of their interview process and to give us their top tips for how to succeed. Here’s what they said:

“Psychometric testing is a way for you to demonstrate your English and Mathematics skills. It is a quick and simple way for us to assess your skills and we only receive the names of the candidates who pass the tests so make sure that you have practiced beforehand!”

Top tips

  • Take advantage of the practice psychometric tests that your Careers Service offer
  • Watch your timing – it’s one of the most common mistakes made by candidates
  • Working under pressure

How can your Careers and Employability Service help you to prepare?
